    Increase Atherton-Last Will Testament 15 Dec 1671
    A nuncupative Will made for Increase Atherton (son of Humphrey) in December 1671 taken on board ship while he was dying.

  • Notes 
    • Attached is a transcription of a nuncupative Will made for Increase Atherton (son of Humphrey) in December 1671 taken on board ship while he was dying.

      While it does not enlighten us with any further information about his Father Humphrey, it does give us a little more background information about Increase and his Brother Johnathan who were both apparently living close to each other in the county of Middlesex, so both must have returned from Massachusetts back to England at some point.
